New Chapters
 / 

What feels like a million years ago, I wrote a piece for Poynter.org about the sneaky practice of releasing big news over the holidays. My list dates itself (Harvey Pitt? Wha?) but I’ve got a new one for you:

Howard Weaver announces he’s retiring as VP of news at McClatchy.

If you’re not a news industry watcher (Romensk-who?) and/or not already a fan of Howard’s, I really urge you to check out his post. It is, among other things, a practical, forceful, and graceful summation of where journalism finds itself today. It’s pretty McClatchy-specific, given the context, but I think a lot of it can be generalized. And either way, it’s a joy to read.

Then, you probably ought to tune in to whatever Howard gets up to next. Here’s a tip: I find his Twitter feed is among the best — and most poetic — on my screen.

And of course, with any luck, you’ll still be able to find his comments here on Snarkmarket.

Congratulations, Howard.
